Cell Line Name


Cell Line Description

A trypsinised variant of LS180 (ECACC catalogue no. 87021202), both lines being derived from a 58 year old female with Dukes type B adenocarcinoma of the colon. The cells have microvilli and intracytoplasmic vacuoles. The cells are tumorigenic in nude mice.

Culture Conditions

Cell Type


Subculture Routine

Cells grow in islands and tend to pile on top of each other. Some cells may subsequently fall off into suspension and all cells produce a considerable amount of debris. Split culture when approx. 40-50% confluent, seeding at 2-5x10,000 cells/cm² using 0.05% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA. Can take up to 7 days for cells to attach post sub culture.

Recommended growth conditions 5% CO2; 37°C.

Culture Medium

EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

The Culture Collections represent deposits of cultures from world-wide sources. While every effort is made to ensure details distributed by Culture Collections are accurate, Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data supplied. References where quoted are mainly attributed to the establishment of the cell culture and not for any specific property of the cell line, therefore further references should be obtained regarding cell culture characteristics. Passage numbers where given act only as a guide and Culture Collections does not guarantee the passage number stated will be the passage number received by the customer.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line.
